Hello Friends!  It’s Sunday and the beginning of another Paper Player’s Challenge.

This week, Claire is hosting a color challenge. She chose  a bright and cheery color palette –  Real Red, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.

I wanted to get my hands on the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite from the minute I saw it in Stampin’ Up!s new Holiday Mini Catalog.   This is a fun Suite that will make you want to fire up your over and bake lots of fresh holiday cookies  The die cut “frosting” looks delicious!

My card is a clean and simple version of baked cookies along with some peppermint candy.  The stars and matching frosting are die cuts using the  Gingerbread Dies from the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle. The sentiment is a stamp from the Frosted Gingerbread stamp set.

I die cut the peppermint candy all at once using one of the Gingerbread Dies and a pattern from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper.  The die fits perfectly on the pattern. You can create a lot of peppermint candy with one sheet of DSP and the matching Die.  See my photo below.

You can take a look at the Bundle images below and click on the image for more details about this fun Suite.

So, pull out your Real Red, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight cardstock or patterned paper, die cut some fun images, add a sentiment and link up with us over at the Paper Players.  We love to see what you create.

…the only limitation is your imagination!
